The diagnosis is made based on the typical appearance and history. Treatment depends on the severity of the disease and occurs with topical metronidazole, topical and oral antibiotics, often with isotretinoin, as well as a pronounced Rhinophyma surgically.

Etiology The etiology of rosacea is unknown, but some suggested associations include Deviating vasomotor control Deteriorated venous outflow of the face Increased Follikelmilben (Demodex folliculorum) Increased angiogenesis, ferritin expression and reactive oxygen species malfunction of the antimicrobial peptides (z. B. cathelicidin) Diet plays no consistent role, but some agents (eg. as amiodarone, topical and nasal corticosteroids, high doses of B6 and B12) can worsen the rosacea. Symptoms and complaints rosacea is limited to the face and scalp and manifests itself in four phases: the patient’s pre-rosacea (rosacea diathesis) Vascular Phase Inflammatory phase Late phase In the pre-rosacea phase give a surprising flush of that often accompanied by an unpleasant stinging. The trigger for the blush of exposure to sunlight, emotional stress, cold or hot weather, alcohol, spicy food, sports, wind, cosmetics and hot baths or hot drinks are often given. These symptoms are also present in other disease phases. In the vascular phase, patients develop probably due to the persistent vasomotor instability Gesichtserytheme and -ödeme with numerous telangiectasias.
